I had sent out an email to my intercessors today asking for special prayer for breakthrough here in Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso. We are in a difficult region here where most of the population is Muslim, Animist and other tribal religions. Last night was a challenge, but tonight we felt something shift. I believe the breakthrough we have been praying for is taking place. Tonight, I preached on the power in the blood of Jesus and there was an overwhelming response to the invitation for salvation. Wonderful miracles took place and demons were manifesting as we broke the power of every spirit of infirmity and witchcraft curse!
One of the testimonies tonight was from a little girl – probably four or five years old. Over a month ago she had swallowed a large coin. When she didn’t pass it after many days, her mother took her to the doctor, but they could not help. Tonight, as I was praying, she suddenly spit the coin out. She was so cute. I said to the people, that Jesus loves the little children. He said, “The Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.” Then I asked, “How many little children are here tonight?” I wanted to see where all the kids were. But to my surprise, almost everyone – the young and the old alike – raised their hands. It surprised me at first. Then I realized that they had understood Jesus. He said, “Unless you…become like little children you will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven.” I feel this is such a perfect illustration of why the Lord seems to be able to move so easily here. The childlike heart and faith of these people is so refreshing and precious.
A Muslim woman who had suffered with chronic pain all over her body for 26 years without relief said that as I was praying, she felt the pain leave her body completely. I told her that Jesus does not discriminate against anyone. I asked her if she knew who had healed her. She shouted, “Jesus Christ!”
A man completely deaf in both ears for 12 years was healed tonight!
A woman’s painful breast cancer was healed. The hard mass in her right breast vanished. All the pain disappeared completely!
We heard from two men whose blind eyes opened tonight.
When I asked the people how many had experienced a supernatural miracle in their bodies tonight, literally hundreds, maybe thousands raised their hands. The few testimonies we heard are but a very small sampling of what Jesus is doing here in Bobo-Dioulasso.
Tomorrow, the Fire Conference will come to a climax as we pray for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Please continue to pray for us. The best is yet to come!
Yours in the Gospel,
Evangelist Daniel Kolenda Together with the whole CfaN team
